Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts across Canadian employers have made more inclusive workplaces for employees regardless of gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation. Yet we continue to see inequity for LGBTQ2+ employees and jobseekers. This virtual Pride series will address how we move beyond DEI to Belonging, Dignity, and Justice. This virtual panel series, hosted by Pride at Work Canada, will bring light how we bring belonging, dignity, and justice into the workplace. Bringing both business and community leaders to the discussion, attendees will learn about ways employers can create workplaces that celebrate all employees regardless of gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation.
Our Virtual ProPride 2021 Season is open to anyone who would like to learn about some of the most important topics in LGBTQ2+ workplace inclusion.
